24-years old Denis was freezing nearby concrete fence one cold November night. His dog Chupa was staying with him only. Denis found this dog one year ago at Darnitsky railway station.. Since that moment they have become undivided friends and the dog has been following his homeless master.
Denis had an attack that night, his left limbs were cramped and the young man fell down on concrete plate. He was lying there for more than 6 hours. Chupa brought him some cartons helping his master overcome frost. Furthermore, clever dog was trying to turn attention of kind-hearted people to his master… Elena Polischuk, President of the Fund “Social Partnership” became one of such unindifferent persons. She settled Denis in her car and brought him to the day care “Stephania”. Chupa was taken along with his master.
Denis looked like on the picture above when he was brought to us. He is expected to have a difficult process on his way back to society. He was found lice during medical examination, so his day starts from warm tea and disinfection chamber…
We will brush him up all day long and place new photo. Follow our updates…

Denis is staying in our day care center “Stephania”. The young person has already undergone skin and hair disinfection process and received new clean clothes from at our warehouse.
Meanwhile his true friend Chupa is waiting outside the center. The dog is barking at everyone entering the center, as if it is asking to help him get inside.
The friends finally reunited on the way to our soup-kitchen.
At breakfast Denis told us how he came to Kyiv 2 years ago. He was living with his family in a small town in Sumy region. He was training as mechanic, and once he fell aboard with younger sister and promised her to go from home and better die on the streets than return to live under same roof.
He moved to Kyiv, was living, renting an apartment and beachcombing. And one day he fell asleep with a cigarette… The young person was lucky to get off with only 30% of burned skin. But he lost everything he had. He has been roaming since that… Denis has attack regularly after this fire – he suffers from tremor, his left limbs are cramped. His homeless friends gave him vodka to help Denis calm down.. So he has been drinking 4 months.
We are brushing Denis up in our center’s barbershop.
